3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have no idea what off-campus housing like because I am a freshman.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I have had very few opportunities to eat off campus, but when I have eaten off campus the food quality and quantity has been excellent.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Campus policies are fairly strict with good reason. I believe the policies are in place for better academic performance, for the most part.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid was easy to acquire has been very helpful. However, I don't have anywhere close to the amount I need. School is expensive and there is very little help available except for outside scholarship searches. Additionally, I am not happy that I received $1,000 less than my female constituents simply because this is an engineering focused school. I have better grads than a lot of the girls here and there are fewer outside scholarships available because I am a male in the intelligence field.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't know, because I don't party. I am focused on my career and I want to get a security clearance someday.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Sodexo only has a limited number of options in regard to food quantity, quality, and price. Sodexo is doing the best they can do and the food quality is improving.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy the student housing at ERAU. It's very easy to apply for and it allows for an excellent sense of community.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There's some great places fairly close to campus, but you'll still need a car.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Riddle has great sports facilities but almost no activity in them

4 College Freshman

Academics: Its great for engineering you really get more than what you pay for. But only for engineering.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: The worst. If you are looking for a party please don't come here. there is no parties here or in Prescott

3 College Freshman

Administration: Its okay. The only problem is that due to the small size of campus for the university it is really easy to keep a close eye on students

4 College Freshman

Majors: For engineering its a great school. Starts easy but gets pretty hard fast. I'm double majoring also in business but all business programs here are the worst.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus living is very far from campus, moreover there is no public transport in Prescott, thus you need a car

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Its good but a little bit pricy. Most restaurants are food chains and small restaurants for tourists

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school pride itself on having almost 99% of graduates receiving a job offer before graduating.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, an institution founded exactly 22 years after the Wright Brothers' historic 1903 lift-off at Kitty Hawk, N.C., is where students and academics take flight. With a focus on aviation, aerospace, and engineering, Embry-Riddle offers more than 40 degree programs, in addition to master's and doctoral paths. The academics are what most students rave about, as the courses are challenging and rewarding, although engineering majors are known for especially getting the brunt of the workload. But even though professors pack their syllabi with a lot of assignments and projects, they truly care about their students, and students are thankful for this attention, especially with how high the tuition is (you get what you pay for!). The instructors are so attentive because it’s a small school, but sometimes this smallness can be a drawback, especially when it comes to the athletic programs. Not many students participate in varsity athletics, and there is scarce school spirit to support these teams, so if you're hoping to see flying banners in addition to planes, you're more likely to see the latter. Good news for the ladies' spirits, though: Guys are plentiful on campus, making up approximately 80 percent of the population.

Located in beautiful Prescott, Ariz., Embry-Riddle experiences sunny weather nearly year-round, which may be a reason why the surrounding area is known as a retirement community with little nightlife. Many students travel to Phoenix for more exciting attractions, with the state capital being about an hour and a half from campus. But while the Prescott area consists of an older community, that means that the crime rate is relatively low, which makes students feel safe in their surroundings. Plus, everything on campus is mostly within walking distance, so there's no need to have a car. If you do have a car, though, parking is readily available. If you need to get off campus and don't have a vehicle, the best advice would be to make a friend with one. To get to the airport, the University offers free shuttles for students, and by the end of your time at Embry-Riddle, you'll probably be able to tell your pilot how to fly the plane.
